AT&T Workers On Strike!

Today members of the Communications Workers of America at AT&T West have called an unfair labor practice strike and are off the job and on picket lines across California and Nevada. CWA represents approximately 18,000 workers at AT&T West. Frustration over AT&T’s repeated violations of workers’ rights has prompted today’s Unfair Labor Practice strike.

“Contract negotiations are never easy,” said CWA District 9 Vice President Jim Weitkamp. “But when AT&T violates the law repeatedly, the process really can’t work. Given AT&T’s record profits, tax breaks and jaw-dropping executive compensation, there is no reason for them to insist on lowering the standard of living of a single worker.”

In months of contract negotiations, AT&T has demanded major concessions from workers on health care, job security, scheduling, sick leave, disability, and pensions. Members have been working under an expired contract since April 8.
